DIY Gift Card Holders

Last month I had the chance to shop at Southlands, in Aurora, CO. We were given gift cards to go shopping with – and it was so much fun! Being handed a gift card as a gift allows you to buy exactly what you want, so they make the perfect gift!

If you’re looking for the perfect last-minute gifts, gift cards are a great go-to. You can find a gift card for just about anyone, and they are so much fun to wrap up with these easy to make gift card holders!
